MAGICIAN and COMEDIAN Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller will discuss his new book “Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!” at Track 16 Gallery in Santa Monica Nov. 15.

Live Talks Los Angeles will present An Evening with Penn Jillette, the illusionist, comedian, magician and half of the popular magic and comedy act Penn & Teller, at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15 at Track 16 Gallery in Santa Monica.
A reception will precede the event from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Bergamot Station gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave. C1, Santa Monica.
During the event Jillette will discuss his new collection of spiritual rants and hilarious ravings, “Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!” which was released Nov. 13.
The talk is part of Live Talks Los Angeles, a series that features speakers from the worlds of art and entertainment.
Event organizers say that “Jillette’s new book applies his trademark wit and sharp observations to subjects like the horrors of Christmas carols, celebrating his children’s birthdays, and the finer points of the Fourth of July and Halloween.”
He has been nominated for more than 15 Emmy awards, and published a New York Times bestselling book, “God, No!” When he’s not headlining in Las Vegas, he writes books, makes countless TV and film appearances, and produces movies such as “The Aristocats.”
Tickets are $20, $40 with Jillette’s book, or $95, which includes the book and pre-event reception. Proceeds from reception tickets will support the upcoming Live Talks Los Angeles emerging voices/authors series of events in 2013.
